Blackfen’s Got Talent!
Our work at Blackfen is not just about helping our students become powerful citizens, but also to become powerful learners. The two aims of course have much in common; learning about power, and the power of learning go hand in hand.
Blackfen’s Got Talent is our attempt to help students learn about learning, by learning a new talent. The key to this working is 1) to focus students on how, not what, they are learning 2) not to direct students, but simply to nudge, encourage and question them.
I hope this video sets out the challenge clearly, and I have attached resources and lesson plans below.
